Tyler Bozak was held out of the Toronto Maple leafs on Saturday and that could happen a few more times in the coming days.

Bozak didn’t play against the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins due to a lower-body injury, and now he could miss up to 10 days as a result.

Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle told reporters in Toronto that Bozak will be out a week to 10 days, as per Chris Johnston of Sportsnet.

Joffrey Lupul, who also didn’t play Saturday due to a foot injury, will be on the Leafs’ Western road trip, according to Johnston. The Leafs began that trip on Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers.

Even with those two out of the lineup, the Leafs powered their way to a 4-1 victory over the Penguins, thanks to three goals in the third period.

Sidney Crosby was not only held of the score sheet, but he was a minus two.

Slotted onto the top line as a result of the Bozak injury, Nazem Kadri had himself a good night with a goal in the third period that turned out to be the winner.

“I’ve been saying it all along: I want to be one of those guys that [head coach] Randy [Carlyle] can count on and this team can count on,” Kadri said afterward, as per The National Post. “That’s not just scoring goals.”
